Hiawatha's Song of Manual 

By Olga Phillips 

On the shores of South Meridian — 
It was there Pogue's Run once rippled 
stands a chieftain, strong and mighty, 
Holding sway o'er many redskins, 
Guiding them through every struggle. 
Seeing that they learn to worship. 

Strong and tall does stand his tepee 
Looking upward to the heavens. 
Shining forth of all its knowledge 
Proud the chief is of his warriors; 
As each joins the tribe of Manual. 
He is taught of places distanl ; 
He prepares for years before him. 

As he works and plays he's learning 
What the many braves can teach him. 
They, who learn from own experience, 
Teach him now so he may follow. 
Fearless courage is his wampum. 
You can see him in the tepee, 
What he can to help he's doing; 
You can see him playing also — 
Life has joys with all its duties. 

Campfire council finds him present ; 
When the great tribe all assembles, 
He is there to tell his stories ; 
He is there to listen likewise; 
And at tribal dance we see him— 
See and hear the music makers, 
Knowing life is short but lasting. 
As his people aid each other, 
They grow strong of mind and muscle 
Tribes with tribes in games competing 
Make their lives to rounder grow. 
Tepee years are shorter passing — 
Soon they will no longer flourish. 

Four years long he is a member — 
Proud of his own tribe called Manual. 
Then he leaves the shores of friendship- 
Out into the forest goes he ; 
Long or short though be his hunting, 
Thoughts of tribal days still linger; 
Fond remembrances are growing. 
For 'twas here he lived in freedom. 
If some days of sadness linger, 
Experience has taught him better. 

Now he builds his own small tepee, 
Now he practices his teachings ; 
Knows his chieftain was in earnest, 
Knows he led the redskins we 1 !. 


Oh, Ghost of Manual, long will 
it be before such leaders as those 
of the 19 39 tribe cross your des- 
tiny again. The officers of this 
Utile Council — Harold Light, little 
chief; Norman Williams and 
Ralph Anderson, sub-chiefs; Alma 
Childers and Annette Thornberry, 
keepers of the records; and Royce 
Stevens and Lawrence Damn, hold- 
ers of the wampum will long be 

Important in the pattern of the 
tribe's weaving is the Senior 
Booster on which many moons of 
effort are expended. Like a 
smooth, shining lake which reflects 
the activities on its surface, this 
pictum-book is made to recall the 
joys and sorrows of days in the 
Manual Wigwam. To that end 
Chief-um-bookum Joe Shupinsky, 
sub-chief-um Mildred Reimer, Led- 
gum-keeper Hazel Hardcastle, 
Sub-ledgum-keeper Eugene Beard, 
Chief-um-drawum, Annette Thorn- 
berry and Chief-um-games Sam 
Chernin, present to the tribe the 
Senior Booster of 1939.

We of the Great Tribe Senior Booster, mem- 
bers of the Manual brotherhood, shall pass from 
a truly happy-hunting' ground, when during the 
sixth moon, our chieftain, Skip-um-McComb, gives 
us our buckskins and lets us pass to the great 

unexplored — there to seek for our own chieftain- 
ship, wampum, and happiness. 

The brothers of this strong tribe can say truth- 
fully that they are prepared to pass into the un- 
known. For scores of moons since the time when 
they came as papooses to the Manual Wigwam 
and through the stages of warriors, braves, and 
finally as sub-chiefs, the mighty Manual Council 
has imparted to them all the fruit of their years 
of search for knowledge. 

So now with the slyness of the fox, the wisdom 
of the owl, the bravery of a wolf protecting its 
young, the speed of the eagle, and the strength 
of a grizzly, we shall go out to make our mark. 
It was with the advice of the Great Manual 
Council that we carefully chose our weapons, 
sharpened by so many moons of learning. 

But it was not all making ready for the tem- 
pests of the unknown. We have had much fun. 
With our festivals, tribal dances, and contests 
with other tribes, we have learned not only the 
meaning of loyalty but also the truths of sports- 
manship and cooperation. 

To Manitou, the great Indian god, we offer up 
fexwent prayers that he may lend us his protect- 
ing hand when in the future we attempt to illus- 
trate our battlecry, "Not to the Top, but Climb- 
ing." And in the moons to come, we will return 
to see on the walls of the great Manual tepee, our 
shield designating our tribe as one of the great- 
est since the coming of the white man to the 
Manual Wigwam. 

—J. S. 



Saga Of The Tribe 


It was a sunny day in 19 3 5 when the copper 
faced chieftains (teachers) of the stockade of Man- 
ual were preparing for a vicious onslaught of the 
freshman papooses. When the grand attack hit 
about one o'clock in the afternoon, infant redskins 
seemed to stream from every direction — north, 
south, east, and west. They were met on the battle 
ground of the auditorium by Chief-um-E. H. Kem- 
per McComb whose smooth speech and peace pipe 
induced the little warriors to submission to his will. 
The next day the new attackers were teased and 
mistreated by the already civilized braves and 
squaws but like all good Indians, they endured all 
without a whimper. 

The passing of 13 moons found the papooses in 
wigwams and rechristened sophomores. Now well 
on the road to civilization, the young bucks and 
squaws were, nevertheless, quite reckless, not buck- 
ling down to their work. In 2 6 more moons they 
were promoted into their junior year where they 
really knuckled down to the task of acquiring an 

The 39th moon passed and we (for I was also one 
of the freshman Indians) were ushered into our 
senior year. Our new wigwams afforded us much 
more fun as we followed the signals of the veteran 
copper-faces, Miss Arda Knox, Mr. A. R. Williams, 
Miss Lena Brady, and Miss Margaret Kellenbach. 

During the first semester we elected for our little 
councilmen Harold Light, president; Geraldine Zlx 
and Eugene Beard, vice presidents; Annette Thorn- 
berry and Alma Childers, secretaries; Royce Stev- 
ens and Lawrence Daum, treasurers. 

Not unlike most Indian tribes we chose a motto, 
"Not to the Top, but Climbing," which became our 
battle cry and inspired us to higher achievement 
throughout our senior year. At this time we also 
selected the beautiful sunset rose, to be worn as our 
tribe color on such days as Ivy Day and Class Day. 

At our first big powwow in the auditorium in 
November we installed our little councilmen, and 
our little chief accepted the gavel and trowel pre- 
sented by Chief E. H. Kemper McComb. 

To satisfy dramatic longings of some of the 
squaws and braves the senior class presented "The 
Late Christopher Bean" on November 21-22. The 
play was successfully given under Big Direct-um 

E. Edward Green and Little Direct-um Mrs. Vivian 
L. Siener. 

In January we celebrated Ivy Day. The first part 
was observed in the auditorium with an original 
skit written by Squaw Olga Phillips. At this cele- 
bration an original poem by Frances Cochran, and 
original song by Squaw Mildred Alice Boyl were 
read and presented. The banner, designed by Red- 
skin Joe Shupinsky, was also exhibited and we wore 
for the first time our arm bands, designed by Squaw 
Annette Thornberry. This festival was followed 
by a swing-um in the boys' gym. 

After a most successful first semester campaign, 
we decided to renew our little councilmen for a sec- 
ond semester. The chieftains chosen were Harold 
Light, president; Ralph Anderson and Norman Wil- 
liams, vice presidents; Annette Thornberry and 
Alma Childers, secretaries; Lawrence Daum and 
Royce Stevens, treasurers; Alfred Hubert, giftori- 
an; Sam Chernin, prophet; Margie Burns, will 
maker; and Kenneth Kuebler, historian. 

To give some other braves and squaws a chance 
in the dramatic line, the tribe put on the play "New 
Fires" on April 20-21. Again the play was succes- 
ful under Big Directum E. Edward Green and Lit- 
tle Direct-um Mrs. Vivian L. Siener.. 

On May 17 we celebrated our Class Day in the 
auditorium and had a swing-um in the boys' gym 
afterwards, thus closing our activities for the senior 
year except, of course, commencment. The gradu- 
ation ceremony will be held in the great medicine 
hall, Cadle Tabernacle, on the fifth day of the sixth 

So it is in fine manner that Manual's 1939 Senior 
Class has brought to an end an eventful four year's 
of achievement, for it was in 19 39 that the Red- 
skins scalped the other schools for the City High 
School Basketball Crown and Squaw Nellie Chas- 
taine won the City wide Constitutional Essay Con- 
test. Now may we turn over the responsibility of 
keeping Manual a school of both scholastic and ath- 
letic achievement to the younger bucks and squaws. 
We can also thank our lucky stars that we had such 
good powwowers as Big Chief E. H. Kemper Mc- 
Comb and his council. Now we can go to the out- 
side world and show them some more real Redskin 
courage and loyalty.

Today ire plant our Ivy vine 

Hoping it trill grow 

Keeping pace with other vines 

Entwining on the null.

Seniors Present Howard 
Comedy for Fall Play 


Through the willing cooperation of directors, 
teachers, cast, backstage hands, and students, 
members of the June '39 Senior Class success- 
fully presented "The Late Christopher Bean' 7 
by Sidney Howard on November 17 and 18, 1938, 
in Manual's auditorium. 

This comedy, dealing with a family of New 
Englanders who had years before given refuge 
to a drunken, unrecognized artist, revolves 
around the attempts of an excited world to gain 
possession of the work and any details about tin 
life and character of the late Christopher Bean. 

The Haggett family, who have some of Bean's 
canvasses, suddenly realize their value and be- 
come hard, selfish, and ill-tempered. Dr. Hag- 
gett, impressively played by Noble Pearcy, an 
amusing picture of a small man bcsd with many 
troubles ; Mrs. Haggett, as enacted by Marjorie 
Roempke, assuming certain citified airs in dress 
and bearing because she feels herself above the 
standard of her native village; Nadejda Popcheff 
as the elder daughter, Ada, glorying in thinking 
she possesses babylike prettiness and manners ; 
and Elizabeth Scott, as the younger daughter, 
Susan, a pretty girl of nineteen — turn in better 
than average performances as a small town fami- 
ly suddenly finding themselves in the prospect, 
of becoming neb. 

But it is Abby, the family servant, who ulti- 
mately holds them all in her power. She has one 
of Bean's greatest paintings which she cannot 
be persuaded into selling or giving away. It was 
she alone who understood and appreciated the 
artist before he died. Because of her kindness, 
he left her his greatest painting, a portrait of 
herself at work. Abby, as enacted by Evelyn 
Rutledge, is a wistful sort of girl between 
youth and middle age, undecided, assertive, and 
independent under-dog of the Haggett house- 

The attempts of various critics and defrauders 
to possess Bean's paintings, the love affair be- 
tween Susan and a village boy, the going away 
of Abby. Mrs. Haggett 's attempts to marry off 
Ada. and the bit by bit unfolding of the history 
of Bean, lend to the clever situations and sur- 
prising twists of plot to the play. 

-Toe Schmalz as the village painter and paper- 
hanger in love with Susan turns in a well enacted 


role. William Stuckey as Tallant, a smooth, 
youngish, shabbily dressed New Yorker; Keith 
Wilson as Rosen, an ody and too affable Jewish 
gentleman of middle age ; and Kenneth Keubler, 
who portrays Maxwell Davenport — as the per- 
sons who seek to buy Bean's paintings give cred- 
itable performances. 

The success of the play was also largely due 
to the director, Mr. E. Edward Green; assistant 
director, Mrs. Vivian L. Siener ; and student 
director, Jean Hoeferkamp. Geraldine Zix and 
Doris Sohn demonstrated their capability as 
prompters. The senior class is also indebted to 
the splendid backstage work of Mr. Lewis E. 
Finch, technical manager; Carl De Felice, assis- 
tant technical manager; Bessie Rosenberg, stu- 
dent stage manager, and the stage crew. 

Properties were provided by Martha Vander- 
Schoor, Jean Kline, Charlotte Craig, Shirley 
Marks, Kathleen Sponsel, Leo Costello, Harold 
Miller, and Bemice Berger. 

Beatrice Pacey, Annette Thornberry, Eliza 
beth Kehl, Alma Czinczoll, Emmajean Sickbert, 
and Betty Lou Baker selected the costumes. 

Publicity was in charge of Miss Gretchen A. 
Kemp with the English VIJ Class, Sam Chernin, 
Alfred Hubert, Joe Shupinsky, and Olga Phillips 
assisting. Miss Helen A. Haynes directed the 
advertising campaign assisted by her Salesman- 
ship II Class. May Jones, Annette Thornberry, 
William Alte, Norma Lee Bottles, Carl De Felice, 
Lela Mae Fox, Myrtle Gresham, Dorothy Han- 
nan, Charlotte Heck, Doris Linville, Ernest 
Mador, Alma McKee, Laura Myers, Robert Tay- 
lor, and Ben Yach under the supervision of Mr. 
Charles Yeager, made posters advertising the 

Miss Lena Brady, aided by William McCrary, 
Louise Maier, Sarah Monath, Roselyn Wischmey- 
er, Winnifred Ragsdale, Lucille Williams, Har- 
old Robertson, and Joe Trester of 217, and 
Charles Angelkovich, William Fair, and Mar- 
jorie Arnold of 135 were in charge of the ticket 

Miss Arda Knox, house chairman, was in 
charge of sixty-one seniors who acted as ushers. 

The memory of a successful production will 
long be cherished by the June '39 Seniors as one 
of the outstanding events in a happy senior year. 


Burdette's f New Fires' Scores 
Success As Spring Class Play 


"New Fires" was successfully presented by 
the Senior Class of 1939 to a capacity audience 
in the school auditorium on April 21 and 22. 

The three-act comedy by Charles Quimby Bur- 
dette concerns the antics of the family of Steph- 
en Santry, a Chicago author, who, realizing - that 
his wife and children have lost their apprecia- 
tion of worthwhile thing's, takes them to an in- 
herited farm in the Missouri Ozarks for a week- 
end visit. Mr. Santry, alias Harold Light, is 
determined to make the family stay on the farm 
and work if they expect to eat. The country at- 
mosphere and the determination of the father 
changes each member of the family considerably 
with the extended three months' visit. 

Juanita Truitt appeared as Anne, Stephen's 
wife. Julia Haynes portrayed his eldest daugh- 
ter Olive, a rebellious girl of twenty years, whose 
stubborn disposition softens as she slowly falls 
in love with a young country physician, Dr. 
Lynn Gray, enacted by Ralph Anderson. Law- 
rence Damn played the part of Dick, Santry 's 
eldest son who is newly wed to Jean Hoeferkamp, 
a very charming and capable wife. The younger 
members of the family, Birchard Bush and Bes- 
sie Rosenberg, two fun-loving sixteen year olds 

in the persons of Billy and Phyllis, provided the 
humor of the play and added much of the pleas- 
me derived from it. 

included in the cast of feminine roles is a 
fifty year old housekeeper, Lucinda Andrews, 
ably portrayed by Kathleen Sponsel, who lead 
Billy and Phyllis a merry chase after Stephen 
Santry has given her permission to correct them. 

Suzanne Toler, an elderly spinster enacted by 
Martha VanderSchocr, is a meek sort of person 
who has no hesitations about speaking her mind. 

The top scene of the play occurs when Mary, 
Christine Gershanoff, a neighbor girl of fifteen, 
who much to the Santry distress, causes them to 
he quarantined for a month with scarlet fever. 
Olga Phillips was cast as Mary's mother. 

Robert Stringer as the caretaker's son, Jerry, 
a bashful boy of sixteen, turned in a better than 
average performance. He, with Billy, ably en- 
acted some of the high-light comedy scenes of the 

Roland Kennedy as Jerry's father presented a 
picture of a man torn between obedience to 
Stephen Santry and a desire to torment Lucinda 
Andrews. Norma Bottles as Jerry's mother 
turned in a creditable performance.

Linksmen Drop 

Season Opener 

Coach Harry Boese's golf team 
bowed to the Washington four- 
some 7% to 4% in their initial 
match of the season. James Chap- 
man, low scorer on the squad, and 
Bill Kniptash formed a strong nuc- 
leus for the quartet, but D».wey 
Donovan, Walter Rafert, Jack 
Herman, James Cox, Robert Kap- 
pus, and Rockie Meo, contenders 
for the two remaining berths, were 
not powerful enough to bring the 
links squad consistently into the 
winning column. 

Wins Trophy 

Reserves, Rhinies 
Promising Varsity 

Reserve and freshman squads in 
the months gone by gave Manual 
fans a glimpse of what may be 
the Redskin teams of tomorrow. 

Allen Smith sparked the second 
string football squad, coached by 
Mr. Leslie Maxwell, to three vic- 
tories in four starts, Washington's 
city champs spoiling an otherwise 
perfect record, while Coach 
Harold Boese's yearlings turned 
in a tie tilt with Southport for 
their best in five games. 

The reserve hardwood five, 
guided by Coach Harry Thomas, 
could not get started, but showed 
signs of promise in the city tourn- 
ament. Coach Alvin Romeiser's 
freshman quintet, which may have 
produced two coming stars, Billy 
Arnold and Charles "Chuck" San- 
ders, closed the ledger with eight 
victories and seven defeats. 

Although the rhinie track 
squad, led by Mr. Volney Ward, 
did not fare so well in the scoring 
at meets, many of the yearlings, 
who were recruited for a few of 
the varsity meets, will bear watch- 
ing next season. 

Pmmen Continue 

Fight For Bowling 

Bowling enthusiasts kept up the 
long, uphill fight during the past 
year to establish bowling as a 
sport at Manual. Although thirty 
students and alumni bowled at one 
time or another, only an average 
of ten pinmen competed each Sat- 
urday. Eugene McCarty and Car- 
rol Leppert paced the boys' loop 
with scores ranging from 162 to 
186, while Birchard Bush and 
Maurice Zweisler remained most 
faithful to the sport. Feminine 
bowlers were led by Bernadine 
Magness and Mitzi Longere. 


Kniptash Downs 

Cox For Crown 

Lone survivor in two weeks of 
gruelling competition on the ten- 
nis courts of Garfield Park last 
September and October was "Bill" 
Kniptash, whose name now adorns 
the Menges-Martin trophy. Knip- 
tash downed finalist Jinimie Cox 
6-4 and 9-7 in two hard-fought 
sets for the Manual tennis crown. 
Al Dunn and Bill Arnold battleu 
their way to the semi-final's of the 
tournament, which opened with 30 
bovs vieing for honors. 

Davis Tops Four 
Frenzel Winners 

Bernard Davis led winners of 
the Frenzel contest, a test of skill 
in apparatus, tumbling, and sports, 
the first semester, while the five 
medalists of the second semester 
were chosen by gym instructors 
Mr. Alvin Romei'ser and Mr. Oral 
Bridgford on the boys' citizenship 

Davis topped a list of four gym- 
nasts, Pete Pappas, Arthur Green- 
berg, Joe Bailey, and Carl Camp- 
bell, for the five semi-annual Hon- 
ors Day Frenzel medals. 

Based on the citizenship quali- 
ties including general behavior, 
attitude, cooperation, sportman- 
ship, and leadership and the sem- 
ester achievement record, awards 
for the second semester were won 
by Carl Campbell, Arnold Deer, 
Ralph McFall. John Ritter, and 
Wilbur Schmedel. 

Take Second, Fourth 
In Southport City 

Dangling from the belt of the 
Redskin cinder squad at the close 
of the season were three triangu- 
lar meet victories, a second place 
in the Southport Relays, and 
fourth in the city meet. 

Coach Raymond Van Arsdale's 
charges opened the schedule by 
defeating Brazil and Crawfords- 
ville, 65-49-17. 

A fall of a Redskin runner in 
the half-mile relay and a Cardinal 
first place in the pole vault event 
was enough to give Southport a 51 
to 49 y 3 victory in the fifteen team 
relay carnival. 

Relay Squad Wins 

The mile and half mile relay 
squads provided the winning mar- 
gin for the Redskins, who regis- 
tered 6 5 points to Ben Davis' 53 
and Broad Ripple's 17. The mighty 
mite on the cinders, "Moe" Nah- 
mias, trotted the 44 yard dash in 
51.2 seconds, a new record for the 
Manual field. 

Three top-notch men were drop- 
ped because of scholastic difficul- 
ties and rulings before the city 
meet won by Tech, but the Red- 
skins with 37 points were only 8 
points behind Shortridge in sec- 
ond place, add V2 point in arrears 
of Washington in third position. 
Rhinies Outstanding 

The freshman Mascari twins 
placed first and fourth in the mile 
event, John winning in 4:40.9 sec- 
onds, less than two seconds off the 
city record. The half mile relay 
squad of Fair, Robinson, Calderon, 
and Nahmias crossed the finish 
line in 1 minute, 36 seconds. 

The E.M.T.H.S. thinly clads won 
in a breeze against Seymour and 
New Albany. The score — Manual, 
52; New Albany, 38; Seymour, 26. 

Girls' Sports Varied; 

Three Win Medals 

The so-called weaker sex, under 
the leadership of physical educa- 
tion instructors Miss Theo B. Parr, 
Miss Elena Raglin, and Mrs. Dor- 
othy Huber, covered nearly the en- 
tire field of sports in the 19 38-3 9 
school year. 

Katherine Strols, Marie Sasso- 
wer, and Helen Fender were re- 
warded with Frenzel medals for 
perfect attendance and election to 
nine honor teams during nine 
sports seasons. 

Girls participated in soccer, 
speedball, archery, tennis, dancing, 
tumbling, badminton, and volley- 
ball. The fall tennis tournament 
was won by Irene Kuntz.

Pigskin "Breaks" Take a Holiday; Redskin Gridmen End 

Season With Record of Three Victories, Five Defeats 

In a season marked by an over- 
abundance of tough breaks, the 
Manual Redskin football aggrega- 
tion completed their schedule with 
a record of three victories and five 

The Crimson eleven emerged 
triumphant against Warren Cen- 
tral, Westfield, and Broad Ripple 
and bowed to Bloomington, Tech, 
Washington, Southport and Cathe- 
dral. Only one of the five losses 
was chalked up by a decisive mar- 
gin, three of the battles being lost 
by lone touchdowns. 

Bloomington opened the sched- 
ule by defeating the Redskins 14- 
7. The first intercepted Manual 
pass of the season in the first min- 
ute of the first game on the first 
play gave Bloomington the first 
touchdown for a deciding one goal 
lead to hand Manual her first loss.

In the second tussle, a deter- 
mined Cardinal offensive proved 
too much for a weak Manual de- 
fense as Southport thundered over 
the Redskins, 39-0. The South- 
siders bounced back, finding an 
easy mark in Warren Central for 
a 13-0 victory. 

Tech was forced to make three 
goal-line stands in order to trim 
the Redskins, 13-6. Coach Harry 
Painter's charges kept the score 

down by fighting off an Eastside 
advance to the six-inch line. 

Leonard Robinson and Norman 
Williams broke away for 72 and 
56 yard runs, which were largely 
responsible for the 19-9 triumph 
over Broad Ripple. 

Behind the blocking of Gilbert 
Mordoh, Williams again made a 
long distance trek to pace Manual 
to a 13-12 victory against West- 

A rugged Cathedral eleven came 
back in the second half to defeat 
a tired Redskin squad, 12-0. A 
strong wind carried Fitzgerald's 
kick back 80 yards ending a Red- 
skin threat in the first half. 

To end the gridiron season 
Washington turned back Manual, 
12-6, despite the fact that the 
Redskins appeared the superior 
team in the game.
